U.S. Air Force Col. Mark Ely, far right, the 509th Bomb Wing vice commander, gathers with members of Team Whiteman around a display featuring Trinitite at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., June 2, 2017. Trinity Site is where the first atomic bomb was tested on July 16, 1945. With a power equivalent to around 21,000 tons of TNT, the bomb completely obliterated the steel tower on which it rested. The intense heat melted the New Mexico desert sand into a light green, glass-like substance which was later named “Trinitite.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Jazmin Smith)
